Meet the Wimpelbergs! Thom, Cara, Riley, Chase and Evelyn love living in Haiti, and being a part of the Sonlight missionary team.
Thom first visited Port-de-Paix in 2001 and met Cara, who was raised in Haiti and is Sonlight's Kindergarten teacher. Love at first sight? Maybe – it did result in Thom's moving to Haiti and becoming the 6th grade teacher and a Haitian history aficionado. A great joy for the Wimpelbergs is seeing students whom they taught as very young children come to Christ.
Now their own children are attending Sonlight and they feel that Haiti is a great place to raise a family. Riley enjoys crafts, kickball and reading. Thom and Cara were married in 2004 and like to travel to new parts of Haiti, lead Bible studies for youth and young adults, and count it a privilege to serve God in Port-de-Paix.
